UPDATE 2/27/23: Latest app update appears to have fixed endless spinning ball on startup, so revising rating. App has a lot of good content and communities, so find your favs, and use as an additional source for outdoor adventures. More offline content would be only improvement. ORIGINAL 2/15/23: Never worked, would just spin and spin. Uninstalled and reinstalled, as well as restarting phone. Nothing worked. Weird that it was on the state parks website, when it appears to be obsolete.

Nice idea. Very bad execution. Always opens at state level, tap on a search reault, and the pin shows up without zooming in. Try to manually zoom in and then the pin disappears. List of search results are long strings of text that don't wrap, so you can't actually look at results without tapping each one, and then good luck trying to get back to the list.

I'm updating my previous review, giving more stars. There was a learning curve to using this app. I finally figured out that if I want the map live as I hike the SF Crosstown Trail, the best thing for me to do is to find the trail segment, click on its title on the bottom of the screen, bookmark it, then tap the "map" tab towards the top left of the screen. To find it again later, tap "me" in the bottom right to find my saved bookmarks.
